I have one thing that keeps bothers me. I am with a tourist visa here, and I got married and now we want to apply for a green card for me but my approve of extended status of my old tourist visa is not here yet.

Would be a problem if I apply for the green card without the approve or after the date I applied for my tourist visa to be extend?

Hope you understand my question, if not I would be happy to answer to your question regarding my worries.

Thank you!

You may or may not get an extension, what was your reason?

I would file now.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

In February I filled for an extension to have it until the end of June.

The funny thing is that in October 2014 I filled for an adjustment of status from J1 to Tourist visa and they send me the acceptance letter 2 weeks before I go back home.

I extended my tourist visa because of some personal reasons and still didn't get an answer.
